An Aberdeenshire documentary maker has said she is excited about bringing her award-winning film home to the north east of Scotland.

Amy Hardie's internationally-acclaimed The Edge of Dreaming will show at Aberdeen's Belmont on Sunday and Monday.

It began when the filmmaker, of Kemnay, dreamt her horse was dying. She went outside and found him dead.

In her next dream she died at the age of 48, within a year. The film follows her as she tries to respond to it.

She told the BBC Scotland news website: "It is all about the workings of the human brain.

"I dreamt that my horse would die, I went outside and found him dead.

"Then I dreamt I was going to die.

"The Edge of Dreaming is the first time I have ever turned the camera on my own self and my family."

Ms Hardie, who now lives in the Edinburgh area, has received glowing reviewing for her 73-minute work from critics around the world.

She said of Sunday and Monday afternoon's Aberdeen showing: "This is a big deal for me as its taking me home to where I grew up."
